The weekend is all about putting your feet up -as much as you can as a parent, at least. For some relaxation, we uncovered some of our favorite products from chocolate to independent movies to a cocktail to help you regroup and unwind.
1. Enjoy a cocktail: During a recent press preview, I had the chance to learn more about Hood River Distillers and I was impressed by their unique collection of liqeours like the Yazi Ginger Vodka, a premium ginger flavored vodka that spices up the same old cocktails, and inspires mixologists with its flavorful combination of ginger, citrus and spice and the Broker’s London Dry Gin, a small batch, micro-distilled gin made with a 200-year-old recipe in a traditional copper pot still in the heart of England that would make for a fun cocktail right in the comfort of your home.
3. Film Movement: Another simple Indulgences that maybe is not so simple when you have kids is to watch a movie. We don't just mean any movie but one from Film Movement where you can watch films from Cannes, Venice, Berlin, Tribeca, SXSW, Sundance & Toronto without having to leave the comfort of their your home. They have a cool Film of the Month Club where you can receive exclusive access to independent and foreign films with some recent movies being BROKEN, starring Tim Roth and Cillian Murphy; THE DAY I SAW YOUR HEART, starring French actress Melanie Laurent (Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds); and ALIYAH, the French drama the Los Angeles Times called “one of the best films of the year.” We also like how every feature and short film is hand-selected by Film Movement’s distinguished staff, who travel the world in search of great cinema to share with Club subscribers.

4. Pure Madness Chocolate: At the end of the day, we love to indulgence in something sweet and recently we have been loving the high-quality and unique varieties from Pure Madness Chocolate. As a new brand to the marketplace, Pure Madness Chocolate (gotta love that name) is sophisticated, cheeky, playful and incorporates a love of fashion with everyday decadence. This includes a delicious line of truffles, chocolate bars, toffee, sipping chocolate and seasonal peppermint bark. Personally, we have been loving the chocolate bars and their unique flavor combinations with some favorites being smoky almond, dark spice and pure dark that are all intense and so delicious.
